Flier headlined "Why I hate Black History Month" was sent home with St. Louis-area schoolchildren
ST. LOUIS – A flier headlined "Why I hate Black History Month" that was sent home with St. Louis-area schoolchildren has been tweaked after a slew of complaints.
Organizers say they were trying to emphasize the importance of learning about black history all year long, not just in February.
The revised flier is titled, "Why I LOVE Black History Month."
The fliers were sent home last week with students at Jackson Park Elementary School in University City. They were meant to publicize a planned Parent Teacher Organization meeting on the subject.
Organizers say they didn't mean to offend anyone, but some recipients "felt it could be racist." Others simply didn't like the word "hate."
About three-quarters of the school's 350 students are black.

Hate is too unlikable a word so let's just remove it from the dictionary and replace it with something closer to kitten.

How about, "History has no color, so STFU about it being black".
